VêSó is a non-profit making organisation that wishes to gather a collection of images in order to create a digital bank of datas and archived pictures to keep a trace of how a city/country/neighbourhood looked like at a given period of time.
The idea started in Angola and has now been launched in Mozambique by a very enthusiastic and committed young woman named Neide Tsunami.
The first outing organised took place in the Baixa of Maputo starting from Tunduru Gardens and going down to the Fortaleza, through Rua de Bagamoyo to the CFM train station, Mercado Central and back to the beginning.
At the end of the 2-hour walk, Neide asked us to send her our favourite 25 photos, which I did.
Here they are:
The experience was amazing.
Not only did I meet great like-minded people but the fact that we were a group empowered me to take pictures of things and places that I usually don’t dare take.
Also, I learned (or rather had the confirmation) that men are very happy to be taken in photos whereas women are more reluctant.
Please go and have a look at everyone’s photos here.
